  1. Development of Carbon-Conserving Biosynthetic Systems Co-Utilizing C1 and Biomass Derived Feedstocks

    SBC: ZymoChem Inc            Topic: 1

    Herein, Zymochem, Inc., in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), proposes to develop carbon- and energy-efficient biocatalysts capable of co-conversion of C1- and biomass-derived substrates to a high-volume platform fuel and chemical intermediate. We propose to demonstrate a carbon conserving decoupled growth & production (DGP) process to enable improved carbon efficien ...

  2. Increasing Carbon Drawdown and Retention in Terrestrial Biomass using Bioengineered Trees

    SBC: Living Carbon PBC            Topic: T

    Carbon drawdown and retention in terrestrial biomass is currently limited by the rate of photosynthetic assimilation and of decay of lignocellulosic biomass respectively. Living Carbon is developing innovative methods of reducing the susceptibility of vegetative biomass to decay by lignotrophic fungi, thereby reducing the rate of release of carbon dioxide back to the atmosphere through fungal resp ...

  3. DESIGN OF SMART MICRO-FLARE FLEET TO MITIGATE DISTRIBUTED METHANE EMISSIONS

    SBC: Frost Methane Labs Co.            Topic: T

    Methane emissions are responsible for 20% of greenhouse gas warming. A proven, economical way of mitigating these emissions is to find high-flow methane sources and convert the methane stream into carbon dioxide, using flares or generators, mitigating 96% of the warming effects. We propose to develop a miniature methane flare, capable of handling emissions from sources in the range of 10-200 tonne ...

  4. Magnesium Metal Production by Carbothermal Reduction Using a Cyclic High Temperature Condenser with In-situ Vacuum Distillation

    SBC: Big Blue Technologies LLC            Topic: T

    Proposed is method and system to produce magnesium metal, a strategic infrastructure material commonly associated with the growing demand in vehicle and aircraft light-weighting segments. BBT has already demonstrated the effectiveness of carbothermal reduction as the world’s most material and energy efficient production pathway. Scale-up represents a unique challenge to industrial technologies i ...

  6. Engineering of Scalable Platinum-free Electrodes for Pure-Water AEM Water Electrolysis

    SBC: EVOLOH, INC.            Topic: T

    Producing green hydrogen using renewable energy can reduce emissions for major domestic industrial sectors which use hydrogen as a feedstock like ammonia fertilizer, refineries, chemicals and steel. Additionally, green hydrogen can be used to reduce dependencies on foreign energy sources as a transportation fuel for heavy-duty vehicles, a long-duration energy storage medium, or as a natural gas re ...

  7. Non-Equilibrium Plasma for Energy-Efficient Nitrogen Fixation

    SBC: Nitricity Inc.            Topic: T

    Nitricity is developing a technology that produces nitrogen fertilizer using inputs of air, water, and renewable electricity. If successful, this technology has the potential to economically decarbonize fertilizer production from the Haber-Bosch process, which is a $68B global market and gigaton CO2eq/yr mitigation opportunity. Our team has developed a plasma-based process that couples with on-far ...

  8. Integration of Ultrahigh Capacity Sorbents into Direct Air Capture Systems

    SBC: MOSAIC MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: T

    Addressing climate change from greenhouse gas emissions to prevent continued global warming will be done with a suite of technologies. Direct air capture (DAC) of carbon dioxide (CO2) is receiving significant attention as a way to reverse these emissions, however, it is a relatively new technology that will require continued technology development for viable cost targets to be realized. DAC is sig ...

  9. A transformative low cost approach for Direct Air Mineralization of CO2 via repeated cycles of ambient weathering of metal oxides

    SBC: EQUIOPPS, INC            Topic: T

    Increasing concentration of CO 2 in the atmosphere poses a threat to the global climate. One promising method for reducing atmospheric CO 2 is a repeated enhanced weathering process. Enhanced weathering is a process where a natural reaction between CO 2 gas and minerals rich in magnesium and/or calcium is accelerated to quickly form a solid carbonate. The cycle can be repeated by separating the CO ...

  10. Lightweight, High-power Density, Self-protecting Superconducting Power Cables and Connectors for Electric Aircraft Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED CONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: Q

    The proposed program would develop 2-pole high-temperature superconducting dc power cables and connectors with a power rating of up to 50 MW that would enable twin-aisle aircraft with distributed electric propulsion in an effort to reduce carbon emissions of large passenger aircraft. The cables and connectors will contain dielectrics that are independent of the cryogenic medium used as coolant and ...
